Aldermans Consultants core purpose is to provide guidance and creative technology solutions to make the places we work, play, learn and live secure, safe, and welcoming.
We are an independent security consulting firm with offices in Central London. Our areas of delivering effective security assessments and security strategies across London and the Home Counties cover a range of sectors:
The convergence of our expertise in access control, perimeter detection, alarms and CCTV strengthens our design process and leads to improved outcomes for our clients. Aldermans security consultancy delivers a consistent methodology both locally and globally. Our approach has been the key to the successful delivery of over hundreds of projects on commercial property's throughout London and globally. Our shared infrastructure includes a training and education program and a consistent delivery process.
Our security consultants are able to assess and evaluate physical security from an objective standpoint, putting our client's employees, visitors, and the environment first.
An integrated building security review and design is made up three integral components:
From high volume personnel areas, to secure, research and development facilities, our security consultants offer these comprehensive services:
Our consultants are known for establishing effective security programs by utilising a balance of physical, operational, and technical innovations.
We pride ourselves on our loyalty to our London based clients, independent of vendors, manufacturers or integrators. Our impartiality means that we are able to craft an objective and appropriate solution that is specific to your project's operational goals and budget.
Our property security reviews and solutions are tailored to the needs of individual clients via a comprehensive needs analysis which allows us to be selective with mitigation techniques that range from well established to cutting edge.
To provide adequate protection for your building, we make sure all physical, operational and technical elements operate in concert with one another.
Our comprehensive and integrated security approach will save time, money and lives.
When considering the implementation of an effective security posture, we look beyond the individual asset or area we want to protect. Integrated security means a change of mindset, which will ultimately lead to better results. Rather than simply thinking about how to stop a threat once it arrives, we look at how to prevent or disrupt threats before they even occur.

As established security professionals, we understand a security system should be designed to provide a site / facility with the operational flexibility to provide layers of security.
We employ a 5-layered approach to assess security; starting outside and working our way through a building or set of spaces.
Areas we assess include:
Aldermans holistic security consulting services include current and emerging threat assessments, policy review and development, and master planning.

Our security consultants have decades of knowledge and experience advising private clients and corporations across a range of industries, from construction, manufacturing, and transportation, to pharma, hospitality, and NGO's. We help clients create a robust security environment with services that include current and emerging threat assessments, policy review and development, and strategic planning.
Based on industry best practices as well as real-world experience, our holistic approach to security consulting reflects the connected environment of today’s businesses. We believe an integrated security framework provides stronger, cohesive protection to mitigate threats to your organisation, today and in the future.
By assessing your security challenges from different perspectives, Aldermans security specialists help clients better prevent, plan for, and respond to threats.
Our approach is to develop and create an integrated security strategy which combines planning, technology and management, along with physical, technical and procedural solutions, considering current and future security requirements. Criminals and terrorists constantly seek new ways to penetrate security defences, that’s why we design flexibility into our security solutions to ensure they can be adapted as new threats emerge and are identified.
Security is subject to a glut of government and industry standards, police recommendations and planning requirements. At Aldermans, we combine our knowledge of these along with our insight into the workings if criminal behaviour, and our analysis of local crime patterns, to which we apply our technical expertise to the optimisation of our clients’ budgets for security provision. By working closely with specialist security engineers and architects, we deliver fit-for-purpose security solutions that aim to blend with the architecture and support the function of the building.
Our technical security solutions include, among other things, video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection and communications systems, prohibited object and substance detection equipment, real-time location systems, emergency notification devices and perimeter protection design. We work in close partnership with multi-discipline design teams to ensure that security systems are integrated with a project’s building systems, such as public address, lighting, vertical transportation, visitor management along with fire and life safety systems. In addition to system design, we support our clients through the tender and construction process, conduct on-site compliance reviews and participate in final system testing and commissioning.

The ISO 31000 Risk Management Framework is an international standard that provides us as security consultants, guidelines and principles for risk management from the International Organisation for Standardisation. It seeks to assist us in taking a methodical approach to risk management by doing three key things:
As such, this standardisation does not seek to eliminate risks, because the total removal of all risks is impossible. Instead, it is meant to help us identify the risks and establish a strategy for mitigating or reducing them.
There are several benefits associated with adopting the standard, including the following:
